great coverage but oxidizes...
Still has one of the best colour ranges of any powder available IMO
Long lasting powder and good valueThis powder has good coverage and lasts, I keep it in my purse for touch ups on the go over top of liquid foundation. Also love that it has 15 grams of product, more than most other brands.
Great setting powderThis powder is great to use to set your foundation or for some extra coverage and reduces shine
Nice colourGoes on easy and nice colour
Fantastic!Great powder, always has been always will! I use this over my base more so to set it or add a bit extra coverage if I've just used a BB or CC cream, but it definitely is a fuller coverage powder if you want to use it that way. Would 100% recommend, very long lasting and amazing shade range too.
My holy grail powderEvery time I have ever tried a new powder, I have ended up chucking it and going back to the Studio Fix Plus. Even when used over a more affordable drug store liquid foundation, I find it sticks well, hides my discolouration and fine lines and creates a great texture for my skin.
For all the momentsI use my powder with or without foundation! For lighter skin in everyday use only use it. It has great coverage! Or use after base to mattify.
Very good!I use this as a setting powder over foundation and it looks great and lasts forever
best thing eversuch good packaging, they give you free little samples too. I have always been using this powder. it's great to buy it online as it takes few days to arrive it's very quick and convenient
Natures best friend!I use this product daily of my studio fix foundation works really well and hold my makeup all day. It is also great for lighter coverage on its own and can easily build up for more coverage
Best powder!Have been using this for years !
Great coverage on its own or over foundation!
Best PowderI have used this powder for years, it is affordable and lasts months. The finish a smooth and does not look caked on. The colour matches my skin perfectly.
SilkyMakes my skin look really silky and even! Would definitely recommend as it doesn't clump in certain areas or sink into my skin. It is also slightly matifying which is perfect for long days and it blurs imperfections
Airbrushed finishLove love love this! I use it lightly on top of foundation and it gives the perfect airbrushed finish. It’s not cakey at all and with so many options for colour, you are bound to find one that is perfect for you! Would definitely recommend!
AmazingI've been going back to this powder for years now, never fails to set my makeup in place and give an amazing finish and feel to my dry-combo skin! Although I would recommend maybe going a shade lighter than usual as I think it oxidizes the tiniest bit throughout the day, nothing too hectic x
easy to applyVery easy to apply and great because you can get a full coverage in a powder! always keep it in my purse for emergencies
great coverage but oxidizes...This powder looks amazing initially on my skin, but by the end of the day, oxidizes to an odd orange hue. However, my skin is very oily.
Still has one of the best colour ranges of any powder available IMO
Best powder everI love this powder. I love the texture and the finish is absolutely perfect no need to retouch.
Great mineral fixLove this foundation when I just need a light coverage. Great for after microdermabrasion sessions when you are only allowed mineral makeup. Colour match is spot on
fabulousA favourite in our house, forever looking for it as it goes missing in my 13 year olds bedroom. We both love it, Very matte finish, looks great all day.
Works as a setting powderIt actually works well as a setting power. Some of my foundation's coverage is on the lighter side so when I use these foundations, I layer this on top to give some extra coverage.
On the fence about this one...I purchased this a while ago from a Mac store. I also purchased studio fix fluid which I like but when I apply this powder over the top I find it just looks too heavy. Even by just lightly dusting it over my face to set my makeup. And I find it clings to my dry patches even when I use a primer etc. I do have to say tho it gives AMAZING coverage and would be so perfect for someone with quite oily skin.
One of the best!Helps with oily skin and gives great coverage for acne skin
Great coverageI saw this powder used on some beauty blogs. I love a good coverage powder and this certainly delivers.
Perfect for oily skinThis is perfect for my oily skin. I apply once or twice a day and it mattes out my skin without making it cakey!
Goodbye oilGodsend to my oily face. I have been using this for about 6+ years now and I keep on going back to this after trying other products. The product itself lasts and I really don't have anything bad to say about this product.
All time favouriteI’ve been using this for over 10 years this with the Mac Fix Plus spray are like a match made in heaven!
Buildable coverage and perfect everyday compact to have in your bag. Definitely recommend for those with combination skin
Great compact foundationThis foundation is great and leaves the skin with a flawless finish. Easy to apply in this format and is great for travel and topping up easily as opposed to liquid. Worth it!
Great coverageGreat coverage for powder foundation, over liquid foundation or even on its own!
excellentthis foundation is amazing! It blends so easily and leaves a flawless look on my skin! The coverage is perfect and it is so lightweight! I definitely recommend!
Go-to powder foundationGreat to set foundation but I also love to use it on 'no makeup' days. Excellent coverage for a powder and non-drying,
Would repurchaseI use this every day as a setting foundation. It’s has a lovely buildable coverage but I find if I use it alone it clings to any dry areas.using as a setting foundation it lasts really well and helps to build that flawless face. I used to love the bare minerals compressed powder before they changed the formula and I think this works just as good.
great for setting the facethis foundation is better used to set the face and add extra coverage than using it alone. lasts forever and prolongs makeup wear
My go to foundationI have been using it from last 4 years..never had any issue with it..not too dry for my combination skin..too good for my asian skin..always get compliments for no make up look
Great coverageVery good coverage for my acne..non streaking n truly matches to my skin tone.
lovelyi wanted this to provide extra coverage to cover my acne and it did just that, didnt make my makeup look cakey either
Great powder and extra coverageLove my MAC products, and this one definitely doesnt dissapoint!
High coverageGreat to touch up foundation during the day. Provides high coverage and sets foundation without drying it out. Lasts a long time
Great coverageFood coverage powder, i use this over foundation to add extra coverage plus it helps to keep my face matte all day
GoodI use this to touch up my foundation throughout the day. It absorbs all the excess oil on my face and gives me a smooth finish
Awesomegood coverage doesn't unsettle the foundation or whatever is underneath
LOVE ITlove it so much worth getting doesnt dry skin out too much
Great coverage!Works really well with the studio fix foundation! The colours match really well too. I can get quite an oily skin and this works perfectly to set my foundation and keep it looking great the whole day
LOVE ITthis is so good and goes over my liquid foundation perfectly and doesn't dry out my face
Love this productI love this product, have been using it for a number of years, perfect cover
On the goI use this for touch ups during the day and it works perfectly. Great coverage foundation.
My number 1 powder foundation!I'm 29 now and have been using this powder since I was 18. It is amazing on it's own, The coverage is buildable full coverage. I like using this on it's own when I CBF doing full glam or I use this to set my foundation/concealer and also to touch up my oilyness throughout the night thanks to it's matte finish. I can't speak highly enough of this,
nicegood for no makeup makeup days, adds colour and coverage without making it feel like you're wearing too much makeup
Full coverage powderHave used this product for years and years and love it. I use this powder when I want a more matte finish. I use this over the top of my MAC studio fix fluid foundation when I want a full coverage look that will last all day/night. Have repurchased several times.
Love itSimilar to the studio fix liquid foundation, it is amazing.
This product makes your skin super matte and also soft, it doesnt make your face cakey or anything like that.
It is definitely worth the money. It gives me such a nice and even finished look. However it does make your face a bit flat, finished with blush or highlighter should do the trick :)
Great for setting liquid foundationI use this powder after applying the Studio Fix Liquid Foundation and it works brilliantly to keep my foundation looking fresh all day! I've been using it for years, and keep going back for more each time I run out. I like my make up to be full coverage and don't like to reapply during the day/night so this is perfect!
Full coverageLove this powder for a night out as it is full coverage. Looks super matte. Texture is fine.
Its alrightIt's a nice powder keeps my makeup set and matte which is good because I have combination skin but does kind of cling to dry spots. Might need to moisturize well before. I got a shade a little too light, need to get foundations shade match
Go to powderThis has always been my favourite powder it’s so long lasting and just sets so well on my skin.
Great coverage!Great coverage for a powder foundation, expensive but good
Great coverage!This compact foundation has lasted me ages! great coverage!
Pricey but good productGood coverage for a powder foundation. Comes in a great range of shades to suit most skin tones. Packaging is study and comes with a good sized mirror. I didn't have any issues with this product however I don't know if I would repurchase due to the price point.
Great powder!Last for ages, increases the staying powder of your foundation and applies really nicely. I never felt it was too cakey and its great on its own or paired with a foundation
Best powder foundationi just bought a new one of this powder. It reminds me again how good it is and i cannot stop using it. it is so perfect for everyday use or even for glam use.
Great powder keeps makeup on longer!i use this everyday! keeps foundation into place!
holy grailI dont think I will ever get sick of this powder, love it! its worth the price as it lasts a long time and a little truly does go a long way, also kuddos to MAC for the colour selection
Not badThis has a really good coverage to it, and is totally buildable as well! For me I find it can be drying on my skin on it's own, I definitely find it works better for me on top of a light liquid foundation. Would reccomend though
Love this!!I love this powder! I use it over the top of the studio fix fluid as I love a full coverage look and this product is great!! Have purchased over and over again
Ny new go-to powder!I used to use Clinique Stay Matte powders but they never matched my skin tone. I decided to purchase this after reading reviews and WOW I have been missing out! I’ve never been able to use powder without applying liquid foundation first, but MAC has changed that! I used this powder without liquid foundation for about 12 hours and the only thing required was a touch up on my nose area after 5 hours. Have recommended this product to everyone since the first day I used it!
Only Powder You NeedI have been using this powder both for on top of my foundation and just on its own for years. It gives you flawless, matte, long lasting, all day coverage - even after I work out at the gym, it stays put! It is perfect for holidays in the heat and warm climates (like QLD) as it is humidity proof.
love it not cakeyuse in combination with or without foundation. with foundations makes a super full coverage makeup look minus the cakieness, also helps my foundation stay put and not move or feel oily. use without foundation and it makes a nice not too full coverage easy reddness remover for the quick on the go or light makeup day look
The holy grail of compactsFor years I used this as my only foundation, the coverage it gives is almost better than liquid. My skin doesn’t react to it and it really holds down the shine.
Favourite powderI say this is my favourite powder but it’s actually the only one I’ve ever liked. It’s not drying, gives awesome coverage without being cakey, and on me it looks so natural. It lasts forever too.
Love itI have been using this powder for years and have not been able to find a similar product. I use it ontop of my liquid foundation for a full coverage look or on its own for a light natural coverage. My acne scars are visible through it on its own.
Excellent powder foundationHave owned this powder foundation and using it for years. It is great for full coverage look. I either use it alone as a foundation or sparingly for setting my liquid foundation. Recommend to people looking for a matte look.
Great for a natural makeup look!Bought this and was surprised that the coverage is really good. I wear it on its own or to set a foundation for extra coverage. great for everyday use as it's not heavy and looks very natural. I'd say its more of like medium coverage coz my dark pigmentation still peeks through it. great for travelling and on the go moments as it is compact and comes with a mirror inside. what I do love about this too is that there's a separate compartment for the sponge that it comes with which is great if you don't like to remove the sponge and want to keep it for emergency sitch. overall satisfied with the product and highly recommend!
Great for everyday makeupThis powder looks good on its own. I will use this if i need to do a quick makeup and it last all day. It does look a bit powdery at first but it melts into your skin as the day goes by. So i swear by this powder!
Beautiful, Buildable + BlendableSets foundation gorgeously
Wears on it's own beautifully for a ligther during the day coverage.
Have given this to my sisters, friends, my partners daughter to borrow from time to time to show them how good it is because of how they always comment on how they like the look of my makeup & they loved it too.
Lasts for a very long time, yes it is on the more expensive side but it is a very generous sized compact & lasts me atleast a few months at a time so I find it good value for money.
Built to lasti have repurchased this powder way too many times, I love its consistency and the range of colours on offer. Last all day and gives a matte finish
FavouriteHave used this powder for years, love that i can apply it in so many ways - if I'm wanting light or fuller coverage. I use this with the MAC Setting Spray and it lasts all day and gives a nice matte finish.
The best!I love using this for when i need a bit of extra coverage when my skin is bad.. and for that it works so well! I've never tried it on the naked skin, only ever as a setting powder but i love it for that
Great powder!I only use this powder on top of my foundation on special days, as I don’t want to put too many things on my skin all the tome! Leaves skin flawless. Not a huge MAC fan, but I love this powder and their ruby woo lipstick!
Gorgeous resultI prefer a matte look with my foundation but have found some powders make your skin look either dry, gray or too cakey.
This powder provides a flawless finish and makes your skin look lovely and radiant.
I find you can use this without a liquid base for a little bit of something on your face.
Yes!This is such a great product. It can be used over foundation or literally on it's one for the make up cases.. you don't need a lot of it either!
Airbrush Look!This is the best powder I have ever used. It is great to add an airbrush look on top of foundation but also sits really nicely on those 'no makeup' days as a bit of coverage. I have very oily skin and this has worked wonders.
Second time purchase - won't ever changeThis is my second time purchasing this powder foundation, and I absolutely love it. My first purchase lasted easily 3 years as I just use a tiny bit to set in my liquid foundation. I have very oily skin and have never had any issues with this foundation moving. It looks natural and does not make you look 'dry', you can still go for a dewy look.
Great Setting PowderThis creates a great flawless finish. Recommended by my daughter and it's the best I've ever worn. Lasts all day. I am over 60 and it doesn't settle into fine lines like some. Love it!
Using for 10 yearsThis is the best powder on the market! I have used for 10+ years and it never fails. The best for setting your foundation or wearing on it’s own. You can build it up or just use for a light coverage over your moisturiser or primer. Take it everywhere with me and just about to purchase a new one.
Full coverageI have been using this product for over 10 years now and will never change. Love the coverage and the way it works with the liquid foundation. They make a perfect pair. Lasts all day and never need to re-apply.
Perfect powder foundationLove this product! Firstly, the MAC shade range is perfection, I’m NC10 and there are many other brands that I just can’t use for base products as they are just too orange on my skin. Love this powder for days off when I just can’t bring myself to slather goo on my face but still want to look better than no makeup. Also use this on top of a spf50 bb cream for a great medium to full coverage but natural looking base with sun protection. Buffs into the skin beautifully and melts in with your natural oils to give a nice satin finish.
Overall okayI purchased this in addition with my MAC liquid foundation which was nice to have a colour match, although it was a bit too ‘cakey’ for me and seemed to settle in fine lines. I now keep this in my handbag for light touch ups on the go.
very medicorenot sure if i would ever buy this again because of the price
Looks dewy after a whileI wear this by itself, I don’t use it to set a foundation ( if I needed full coverage I would) but I find with my sigma F80 flat kabuki I stipple it on and then just dap a powder brush back into it and go back over it looks nice BUT the magic happens once it’s been on for a couple of hours. Stunning! For me (normal skin maybe a tad oily in the t-zone) it becomes so beautifully dewy, I look like I have glass skin! Love it.
All time fav!i have repurchased this powder way too many times, I love its consistency and the range of colours on offer. Last all day and gives a matte finish
Great coverage and long wearingFantastic long wearing coverage. Easy to apply and a large range of colours. A great alternative to liquid foundation I have found, much easier to apply.
FavThis is my favourite powder Foundation of all time. Long wearing considering my oily skin, great coverage and no cakeyness.
My every day powderI have used this powder with both the Mac foundation & Estée Lauder and I love it for both. Great finishing powder I use every day. I love it also because it last for ages as well and never makes my skin go flakey or oily
Good setting powderUsed to use this daily as a stand-alone foundation. After trying other products, I've found this alone made me feel quite oily and the transfer was fairly bad. I still use this powder as a setting powder under my eyes and on my T-Zone and that works perfectly for me.
Great for light coverageThis foundation is great to either top up its liquid counterpart or to use as foundation on its own. It isn’t too heavy and provides great coverage, covering uneven skin tone, pimples and breakouts. Good staple to always have in your collection.
Great coverage but cakeyThis foundation has good coverage but does not look natural at all, use in conjunction with mac fix plus and you will not regret it. It helps with the cakeiness
Wouldn't wear studiofix without itThis is an amazing set powder, it helps to control the t-zone section when applying my studio fix liquid foundation. Also works nicely with a few other foundations or even worn alone. Great for touch up's and on the go application
Great powderHigh coverage and a great finish. Great for on the go touch ups.
Used to be a favouriteI have combination skin and this used to be a favourite powder foundation of mine. MAC makes them in a great variety of shades (in a slightly confusing shade name range - ie my shade is NC30 which is “Neutral Cool” but it’s actually for warm skin tones. AdoreBeauty has been really considerate in putting the description of the shade (Golden) in the product information). It has good medium coverage and it does the trick, however, I’ve since found better powder foundations that don’t look as powdery when applied to the skin.
My Favorite Pressed PowderBy far the best pressed powder I've used. Skin look flawless with out a cakey feel.
GoodI like the coverage and the way it sits on my skin but I have two problems with it. A) It tends to make me oily B) It transfers easy. Besudes that I really do like it
Super high coverageI got the shade NC15 and it's slightly lighter than the Studio Fix liquid - but it worked out fine with a bit of extra bronzer. I have pretty red/blotchy skin that is very dry and it have loved this foundation! I definitely have to make sure my skin is exfoliated and moisturised, so there's no dry patches, but the extra effort is worth it for the coverage! Definitely recommend.
